Proposed additions to the collection

Many potential candidates for the Early New Zealand Books Collection are not held at the University of Auckland and attempts are being made to locate them in other New Zealand libraries.

A partnership agreement has been signed with Auckland Libraries to include around 60 items from their collections, including missing issues of the Missionary Register. A similar agreement has been signed with the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

A start has also been made on including published collections of letters and journals from the period to 1800-1870. Some of these are out of copyright (e.g. the Richmond-Atkinson Papers, the Letters and Journals of Samuel Marsden and Marsden's Lieutenants). With others it has been necessary to obtain permission from editors and their estates (e.g. The Founding of New Zealand: the Journals of Felton Mathew and the Turanga Journals).

The long-term goal is to make the collection as complete as possible as far as published primary sources are concerned.

ePub versions of complete books for online reading on devices can now be downloaded from website chapters.
